There Is Still No Crisis

Was at Social Security panel, as people are gearing up for the inevitable fight against the catfood commission. Good panel on the whole, but was rather distressed with the chosen messaging by the coalition which was "Don't cut it, strengthen it." As we knew last time we dealt with this crap, once you concede something has to be done you ensure some sort of horrible "compromise" will happen. When pushed on this by Sam Seder, there wasn't much more than spluttering in response.
